Effective Wednesday, holders of passports from the Republic of India can apply to join the Department of Homeland Security’s Global Entry trusted traveler program.

Global Entry allows passengers entering the United States to bypass the line for passport control and use a kiosk instead of completing a paper landing card and interacting with a Customs and Border Protection agent. Global Entry members are also eligible to use TSA PreCheck trusted traveler security lanes at U.S. airports.

With PreCheck, travelers are able to forgo taking off shoes and jackets, and removing liquids and computers from carry-on bags.

The Global Entry program is available at over 40 airports in the United States.

Citizens from a number of other countries are also eligible to join the Global Entry program, including Colombia, Germany, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.
